74-963 Parking and Loading Modifications in Industrial Business Incentive Areas
In association with an application for a special permit for developments or enlargements pursuant to Section 74-962 (Floor area increase and public plaza modifications in Industrial Business Incentive Areas), the City Planning Commission may reduce or waive the off-street parking requirements set forth in Section 44-20 (REQUIRED ACCESSORY OFF-STREET PARKING SPACES FOR MANUFACTURING, COMMERCIAL OR COMMUNITY FACILITY USES), inclusive, not including bicycle parking, and may also reduce or waive the loading berth requirements as set forth in Section 44-50 (GENERAL PURPOSES), inclusive, provided that the Commission finds that:
(a) such reduction or waiver will not create or contribute to serious traffic congestion and will not unduly inhibit vehicular and pedestrian movement;
(b) the number of curb cuts provided are the minimum required for adequate access to off-street parking and loading berths, and such curb cuts are located so as to cause minimum disruption to traffic, including vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian circulation patterns;
(c) the streets providing access to the development or enlargement are adequate to handle the traffic generated thereby, or provision has been made to handle such traffic; and
(d) the reduction or waiver of loading berths will not create or contribute to serious traffic congestion or unduly inhibit vehicular and pedestrian movement.
The Commission may prescribe appropriate additional conditions and safeguards to minimize adverse effects on the character of the surrounding area.
